The following is a guest post about organized ponytail holders from regular contributor, Rachel.
This is a quick minute or two transformation that I instantly loved. It’s easy to get caught up in the typical before & after results from large organizing projects and miss the beauty in simple everyday changes. A tweak here and there around the house to make life more efficient is equally as rewarding!
We have a narrow, awkwardly sized vanity drawer due to the bathroom sink pipes. My daughter uses the drawer to hold her brush and elastic hair ties used for ponytails, braids, etc. It has served us well for those dwindled down few elastic bands we had remaining from last year. (I will never understand how we lose so many of those little things throughout the year, lol.)
However, when Santa filled her stocking with a fresh pack of 100 ponytail hair ties, the drawer looked chaotic. On her own, she kept trying to organize little piles of similar colors but, naturally, when the drawer would open and close, the piles got jumbled. I didn’t mind the mess behind a closed door, but I knew it bothered her.
So, I pulled out my trusty Command Hooks and got to work. I installed three on the inside of the hairbrush drawer. Truthfully, I wasn’t about to purchase matching hooks, I simply used the mis-matched ones I had leftover in my stash. It worked out to two medium sized hooks and one larger hook. Ideally, three of the larger sized hooks would work perfectly to hold a pack of 100 skinny elastic hair bands (just a courteous FYI).
After I installed the hooks, I let my daughter arrange the ponytail hair bands however she wanted. Of course, the larger hook got the prized pink and purple elastics because, well, it’s my girlie-girl doing the arranging. 🙂
Short and sweet. Easy and simple. But, don’t miss the big picture! Little changes add up to helpful clutter control. Before and after shots don’t always have to be a major overhaul. 😉
How do you keep your daughter’s ponytail elastics organized?
